Red Microwave

8 Red Microwave from psychology to buying (a fun review)

I recently Nominated my Red Microwave as one of the hottest item at my kitchen. The reasons: my eyes are easy to find it since the color distinct itself from other kitchen tools; always give the warm vibes everytime I look at it; "So Cute!!" is the phrase used by most visitors of my kitchen to refer the Red Microwave.

I am interested in red color since my childhood; this might be one of the reasons that I like the red microwave, however, I believe that one reason is not enough to convince you guys to love or buy one.

so I have been doing some researches about the red color, and there are some Guys from color psychology said that red Associated with the following : 


energy, war, danger, strength, power, the determination as well as passion, desire, and love.
Red also Enhances human metabolism, increases respiration rate, and raises blood pressure.
It attracts attention more than any other color, at times signifying danger.


Ok, we don't want war, danger, or the raised blood pressure let's put them aside. ( from all those three only raised blood pressure can happen in the kitchen, and the war at the kitchen is a safe war...sometimes happen between spouses. )

But, most of us honor the good side like determination, passion, the love, and the attention-grabbing features and those are enough reason.

And the explanation about the microwave? You can find it more on our ultimate guide about it.

Now I have these 10 Red microwaves that you can consider to own.

Reviews of the Red Microwave

Our Editor's Rating 5/5

Our editor's research pick this medium sized, medium powered red microwave oven as our favorite.

Not only because of the modern look and the digital display but alsoIt has every feature that a good microwave should have, up to 10 power levels from 10% to 100%,
six one-touch cooking functions for popcorn, potato, pizza, frozen vegetable, beverage or a dinner plate; this feature will save you time on gues work, a warm meal only one button away.

Defrosting with microwave always been an art of time guessing, not with this one, you can choose to defrost by weight, so just measure the weight and hit the button, that's it.


The Reasons To Buy

  • Full Features, you can do cook and defrost just fine, and avoid most guesswork
  • Want the right red microwave oven without thinking too much
  • Good Grip, less slip
  • A small family will not go wrong this one; it has the child lock.

The Reasons Not To Buy

  • If you live in the small apartment or a college dorm, this might not be your best option, even though 1.1 Cubic feet fall into the medium-sized microwave range, it is still big for the small room. 
  • If you have electricity problem or the electricity bill worries you, since 1000 Watt is quite big, it is not convenient to have some of your electronic tools turn off while using this one.

The picture tells us that the red color only happens on the upper front and bottom front, the rest is black, not exactly a pure red microwave, however for people that love red and black, this one can be a good alternative since the colors blend nicely.

this one can be considered as medium-sized microwave, with
Ten microwave power levels, 1-touch cooking features: popcorn, potato, reheat, frozen dinner, beverage and pizza; and a child safety lock, these will be enough to run every reheat and defrost processes for your family.

Another one from Nostalgia, this one also looks retro; the microwave window has an oval shape, make it looks unique than the rest, also appear very cute; it is bigger than the previous Nostalgia Microwave on our list.

The knob is very good addition the microwave, if you want to heat for thirty seconds, just rotate the dial three click and press it. If you want to heat something for more than one minute, you just need to hit the knob and spin it till you get the time you want.

Overspun? Rotate it counter-clockwise till you get it right.

You see, that workflow involves less time than using the buttons.
